Purpose: The Allegheny College Mock Trial team will strive to learn basic legal elements and how to apply them in and out of a mock courtroom setting. We examine a case, together form a theory, learn our parts, practice our parts, then compete with other schools in multiple tournaments. Public speaking, critical thinking, teamwork, performance acting, legal theory, and courtroom etiquette are just some of the many skills one acquires.
Meeting Time: Tuesday/Thursday 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm, Quigley 122
